Erin Diner 3

About Erin

The empath. She’s pure love, vulnerability, and support wrapped into one medium-sized package. She will see through to your core, make you feel seen, and provide the softest of soft places to land. To know her, is to love her. She’s smart, witty, loving, kind, and direct. A best friend. The heart and soul of the More Love Podcast. 


About Rebecca

The avoider. She’s real, spontaneous, and over the top but wants nothing to do with your feelings and emotions. Hardened by time and experience, she will not mince words but boy does she have big feelings (that she keeps close to the vest). To know her, is to be intrigued. She’s smart, funny, uncomfortable, curious, and mystical. A soul sister. The grounding force of the More Love Podcast.
